Final: Terrell County advances (roundup, running score, video)

MACON - The Terrell County girls basketball team shot only 9-of-20 from the free-throw line against Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy on Wednesday in its GHSA Class A semifinal game at the Macon Coliseum.

But in the final minute of the game, the Lady Greenwaves nailed 7-of-8 to pull away and land a spot in the championship with a 56-49 win.

"We struggled at the line," Terrell County head coach Tammye Jenkins said. "We practiced it all week but I think it goes back again to a lack of focus we had. But we hit them when they counted. Would I like our percentage to be better? Yes. But we hit them at the end when (Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy) was right behind us. And that's what matters."

The Lady Greenwaves (25-1) were led by senior guard Monshay Thomas, who finished with 19 points. Center Timnah Hendry came off the bench with 11 points while junior forward Abril Smith had 10 points, despite playing most of the second half with four fouls.
